Dave Graham’s New V15 In Fontainebleau: ‘The Island’

Earlier this week we had news of a possible new V15 in Fontainebleau by Dave Graham. This new problem has been registered at Bleau.info as The Island and has been given a grade of 8c or V15.  Nice work Dave!

Update:  Check Dave’s 8a spraysheet for his comments on the send.

    Nice one on getting the pictures together, it looks like such a cool problem. I hope that there was someone with a video camera on the scene, to be honest I’d be surprised if there wasn’t!

    MVM has a bunch of footage of Dave’s trip coming soon, not positive but I think we have this problem as well.

    Awesome, Mike.  Can’t wait to check it out.  If you don’t have this problem, then just make him do it again 🙂
